"Steel Frame" Sofa by George Nelson

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A modular two-place sofa, with an integrated coffee table, from George Nelson's "Steel Frame" collection, made by Herman Miller. The three modules can be reconfigured to suit one's needs. A very clean and practical design that represents the distilled, highly rational, yet informal conception of modernism that Herman Miller products were famous for.

Another modular seating unit from the "Steel Frame" series is also available, a bench with two orange-upholstered seats and a table. The black-enameled steel frame of this piece is the same as the sofa's.
